      This is amazing! Came out perfect!!!<br/>For people wondering about why your eggs are cooking, dont forget to separate the egg yolks for the eggs!!!! You only use the yolks!!!<br/><br/>I changed this a little bit and Im in heaven. I too used sweetended condensed milk instead of evaporated, and i used half brown sugar and half granulated. it cooked up in about 5 mins with my gas stove. I added in pecans and coconut and its to die for!! VERY EASY TO MAKE!!!

      I should have read the reviews first. The taste is great but it does need to be thickened more. Next time, I think I would use it in between the layers as I did this time and put a cream cheese frosting on the outside.
